ESD Adds Dimming Control System, High-End Finishes for Client

300 North LaSalle is a 57-story, 1.3 million-square-foot building with sweeping views of the Chicago River. ESD’s involvement with the structure includes providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering services for several base building projects and various tenant spaces – most recently, for Boston Consulting Group, a global management consulting firm.

The 25,000-square-foot project completed by ESD’s Workplace Solutions Group consisted of private offices, phone rooms, open workstation areas, lounge areas, meeting/conference rooms and more. High-end finishes were added to adhere to the client’s corporate standards. A Lutron Quantum centralized dimming control system for the entire space, with wireless sensors and code-required daylighting control, was installed.

Challenges we overcame in the $7.8 million project included the fact that no coring was allowed on the lion’s share of the tenant floor due to large mechanical equipment and a two-story space in floor below with limited access.
